Tennessee Titans Draft Profile: DE Tyrone Crawford, Boise State

The Tennessee Titans are a little thin at the DE position and will certainly be drafting at least one in the upcoming NFL draft. Tyrone Crawford out of Boise State is a prospect that the Titans will definitely be taking a close look at. A little lower down on the draft board, Tyrone could be had for a mid-round pick.

Strengths: Crawford has great size for a DE. He came into the combine at 6-4, 275 lbs. He gets off the line fast. It’s hard to find a ton of tape on him but from what I’ve seen he has a great starting burst. He also uses his arms well to keep himself separate from lineman. He has great power and a non-stop motor to go with it.

Weaknesses: Crawford doesn’t possess a great repertoire of moves and doesn’t have extensive experience, only having started one year at Boise State after transferring from a junior college and playing a year at Boise as a back-up.

Overall

Crawford is a solid player who could be picked up between the 3rd – 4th round and has the potential to develop into a solid starter at the next level. The Titans would be wise to take him. There’s a lot of potential in this one and he could be a great sleeper come draft day.
